NEW RECYCLING PROPOSAL FOR THE ACT

OUR PROPOSAL

The ACT Government is calling for innovative and sustainable proposals to improve recycling and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. This process began in mid-2015 with the ACT Waste Feasibility Study (see: https://www.tccs.act.gov.au/recycling-and-waste/about/feasibility-study ) The study was established to investigate how best to reduce waste generation, maximise resource recovery, and achieve a carbon neutral waste sector. Importantly, the ACT Government engaged with the business community through a series of Commercial Reference Group meetings, market sounding and calls for expressions of interest. The ACT Government is seeking a private sector solution to achieve key outcomes of the feasibility study. As a result, CRS is proposing an advanced centre for waste processing, recycling and disposal of residues to a ‘bioreactor landfill’, where methane capture and electricity generation is far more successful. Our plans include the latest technology for recovery of resources from a range of waste streams, packaging of recycling materials, and then transporting non-recyclable residues to the Woodlawn Bioreactor, near Tarago. To achieve this an intermodal railway freight terminal will be constructed adjacent to the CRS site. Planning for a new waste management and recycling centre is underway. Some 48 full-time and 10 or more part-time local jobs will be created should the facility be appoved.
